VISA Warns Rise in Gas Station POS Attacks

Try using Apple Pay or Google Pay instead of your credit or debit card.

When you make a purchase, Apple Pay uses a device-specific number and unique transaction code. So your card number is never stored on your device or on Apple servers, and when you pay, your card numbers are never shared by Apple with merchants.

Google Pay using a virtual account number, which is a type of temporary alias for your actual account number. A virtual account number is created when you add a card using the Google Pay app or your banking app. When you pay in stores, for example, your virtual account number is shared with the merchant instead of your actual account number. This helps to keep your account information safe.
